Ruin & Rule (Pure Corruption MC #1) by Pepper Winters
Kill is the leader of the Pure Corruption motorcycle club. One night when a small uprising within the ranks occurs, chaos reigns and people are killed. In the middle of it all six girls are present, five of them rounded up to be sold. The sixth one is a ghost from Kill’s past here to haunt his present. The sixth girl woke up with no clue as to who she is, where she is from, what covered her body in burn scars or even her name. But she does know one thing after looking into Kill’s eyes: that he has the answers to all of her questions.
I love the way Pepper Winters writes. From the first page to the last one I could not put this book down. It’s a fast paced journey with tons of angst, and I loved every single minute of it. I’m not normally a huge motorcycle club romance fan, but I trust this author and I am so glad I took the small risk on this book because it paid off huge. With the motorcycle club genre there are touchy subjects but for the most part these things we handled really well. The MC life isn’t all kittens and rainbows, but I was never repulsed or truly horrified at what was happening behind the club walls.
Kill is on a quest for revenge against those who wronged him and who hurt the one he loved. He is so blinded by his rage that he lets no one into his life, the woman are objects and the club is a way to help him carry out his vengeance. I really can’t say much more, but this is a book that you do not want to miss. In true Pepper Winters talent, I could feel the twists and surprises coming, but when they were revealed they were unexpected and mind-blowing.
So why not a 5 stars? I really really liked this book, but I spent a good amount of time shouting at Kill through my Kindle because I was so damn frustrated with his stubbornness and actions. It isn’t until about 50% into the book when I actually started to likehim. The heroine and her journey was my favorite aspect of this book. I look forward to more of Kill and her in the second book and to see the continuation of their story.
Overall a fast paced, engaging and pleasurable read, I recommend to all of you readers who enjoy a good mystery and enjoy having your brain toyed with by the author.
